LaQuan Williams WR NE 4 Months
Patriots signed WR LaQuan Williams.
Williams could be taking the roster spot of Austin Collie (knee), which isn't a good sign for Kenbrell Thompkins' prospects of getting a jersey on Sundays anytime soon. The former Raven is expected to contribute mostly on special teams. Williams has four catches in 23 career games.

Ravens WR LaQuan Williams suffered a hamstring injury in Thursday's preseason finale.
It's poor timing, as Williams is fighting for a roster spot. The third-year undrafted free agent finished the exhibition season with just three catches for 43 yards and a score. Even with the Ravens repurposing their receiver corps, Williams would likely again be limited to special teams if he cracked the roster.

Ravens placed WR LaQuan Williams on injured reserve, ending his season.
It's believed to be an ankle injury that's ended Williams' year. A deep reserve, Williams appeared in just 11 games on special teams this season, and failed to play a snap on offense. The second-year undrafted free agent will have to claw for a roster spot in 2013.

Ravens declared WR LaQuan Williams, CB Asa Jackson, OL Jah Reid, TE Billy Bajema, DE DeAngelo Tyson, LB Sergio Kindle, and DT Bryan Hall inactive for Monday night's game against the Bengals.
Williams was talked up all summer by the media, but he finds himself at the bottom of the depth chart. Jackson is dealing with an illness and Reid has a calf injury.

Targeted six times, LaQuan Williams caught two passes for 22 yards in Friday's preseason game against the Lions.
Joe Flacco's go-to target on Baltimore's first two drives, Williams had one potential catch broken up by a defender and let another one slip through his hands. He was targeted primarily outside the numbers, and showed good acceleration on his two grabs. An offseason puff-piece All Star, Williams has three catches for 38 yards this summer. His role on offense should remain minimal.

According to BaltimoreRavens.com, LaQuan Williams had "perhaps the best" offseason of any Ravens wideout.
Reporter Ryan Mink believes Williams could be in the mix for the Ravens' No. 3 receiver role, but concedes Jacoby Jones' salary likely makes him the favorite. Williams was a puff-piece All Star this offseason, but will have to be equally impressive in pads in camp to hold his roster spot, let alone expand his minimal role on offense.

According to the Baltimore Sun, Ravens WR LaQuan Williams has "really stood out" at OTAs.
Per beat writer Matt Vensel, Williams appears "a little more polished," while OC Cam Cameron says he's also noticed improvement. However, even Williams acknowledges he's facing an uphill battle for a roster spot following the arrival of Jacoby Jones and Tommy Streeter. "I have to make plays on both sides of the field, on offense and special teams, to make sure I'm here."
